Ontario Trip

June 16, 2014

 

When we booked our trip, we had three things we wanted to do while there apart from visiting family, #1 eat at the Combine in Simcoe, and #2 attend a Blue jays game, and #3 goto the McMichael Art Gallery, it was a jam packed 10 days, but we accomplished everything and  more that we set out to do.

We spent the 10 days living at my mothers, and the first day we had an early bday party for Mallory and invited my grandmother and Roy over for cake and Desiree made Beef Wellington for dinner.

We love food, and so we made sure to do our research on picked some restaurants we knew we’d love while we were in Toronto for the Jays game.   The Combine had opened the year prior in Simcoe, and I had watched its progress via Twitter.   They serve local/seasonal menus.

We set a side a chunk of change knowing full well we’d end up spending a bit eating out a few times while we were there.   Some photos of the food we got while there.

We spent Saturday at my Uncle Len and Chris’ house for a family reunion.   The entire clan showed up for the event, it was a typical Offless get together, lots of laughter, and antics.

Near the end of our trip we drove up to Toronto for a couple days of checking out the local sights, and attending a jays game.  We booked a room at the hotel in the SkyDome, and drove up to near Barrie to check out the McMichael Art Gallery which is where the group of seven art is housed.    We had to get to Toronto at a specific time to pick up some donuts we ordered, they were medicore, a slight disappoint considering how expensive they were.   Our experience at the hotel was fantastic,  I loved being able to walk back from the game to our hotel in a matter of minutes.   Some photos from our TO trip are shown below.
